Sun Direction : direction of the sun throughout the day

On Now help accurately determine the direction, the orientation and the path of the sun for any time and any date. The relative position of the Sun is a major factor in the heat gain of buildings and in the performance of solar energy systems.

Sun paths at any latitude and any time of the year can be determined from basic geometry.The Earth's axis of rotation tilts about 23.5 degrees, relative to the plane of Earth's orbit around the Sun. As the Earth orbits the Sun, this creates the 47° declination difference between the solstice sun paths, as well as the hemisphere-specific difference between summer and winter.
